Early morning and afternoon game drives in the Masai Mara North Conservancy included in the price.
Sooth your body and mind with a relaxing and invigorating massage at the Earth & Rain Spa or enjoy an al fresco lunch or an evening BBQs around the pool complemented by activities of Masai dancing and talks on the Masai culture.
1. ENJOY THE AMAZING SCENERY AND WILDLIFE
Please give yourself plenty of time to enjoy one of the most beautiful places on earth. You are welcome to stay with animals for as long as you wish as long as you follow the conservancy rules below.
2. KEEP AT LEAST 25 METRES AWAY FROM WILDLIFE
Human activity interferes with an animal’s behaviour; to see animals behave naturally you must keep a good distance away. Please stay at least 25 metres (roughly five vehicles lengths) away from animals. Never put your guide at risk of being fined by asking him to drive too close to an animal.
3. KEEP IT TO A WHISPER
Wild animals will move away or freeze if they hear human voices. To watch animals continue with their normal hunting, feeding and nursing activities please lower your voice and remain calmly seated. Shouting, clapping, or cheering disturbs the wild animals and is strictly prohibited. Please switch off the engine, radio and mobile phones at a sighting.
4. NO MORE THAN FIVE VEHICLES AROUND ANY ANIMALS
To ensure minimum disturbance no more than five vehicles are allowed around one wildlife sighting. When there are more than five, the viewing time is reduced to 10 minutes. In that event take your turn and wait at a minimum distance of 100 metres.
5. LET SLEEPING LIONS LIE
Respect the animals. Do not harass any wild animals by forcing them into movement, blocking their path, or follow them too closely. Vehicles and human interference can cause confusion; separating an animal from its young or preventing a hunting lion or cheetah to bring down its prey. Always keep a good distance from young families, as well as dens, burrows and nests.
6. GUESTS MUST REMAIN INSIDE VEHICLES WHEN CLOSE TO WILD ANIMALS
For safety reasons you must remain inside the vehicles when close to wild animals. This rule also applies for sitting or standing on rooftops.
7. HAVE A PICNIC
At designated areas you are welcome to stretch your legs, enjoy the view or have a picnic lunch. Check for animals, including the above branches. Stay within 25 meters of your vehicle.
8. DON’T SHARE YOUR LUNCH
Wild animals become habituated if fed, causing them to abandon normal hunting and feeding behaviours. They can then become aggressive and threatening towards humans, which may lead them to be destroyed.
9. HELP US KEEP THE MARA BEAUTIFUL
Please ensure that all litter is brought back to the camp with you, including cigarette butts. We want everyone to enjoy the wonders of the Mara. Please do not take any specimens will you; bones, feathers, stones, plants and flowers must all stay where they are.
10. NIGHT GAME DRIVES
Afternoon game drives can easily be extended into an exciting night game drive. Please use a red filter to view animals at night which does not disturb their normal behaviour.
11. RESPECT OUR RANGERS
These rules and the Mara North rangers protect the wildlife and the environment. They are there to make sure that each person who visits the conservancy can enjoy their stay. Please respect our rangers and work with them – we are all responsible in ensuring the protection of the Mara. Thank you and enjoy your stay!
